i think watching anime is in no way immature but my opinion may be influenced by the fact that i actually do watch anime and do not wish for anime to be called immature

Well...I am 24 and I'm certainly not childish. I've always been described by others as "mature" and "morally grounded".
Personally, I have always loved cartoons in general. It is my hobby. The beauty of anime is that I can find ones that are not childish...they have very applicable morals and plots...so I could make that transition from child to adult without having to give up something that I truly love. There are tons of things I can get into when I utilize anime as a starting point, such as art, music, sports, cooking, writing, and character development. Every anime has made some impact on me...the authors usually have a point or a truth to share. I'm sure if you talk to your parents calmly about it, they will see that you are not childish at all
As you can tell, I feel very strongly about this...so I hope this helps...and good luck!

No I do not think it's immature/childish. Most animes are aimed at an age audience of 13 and above right? So it can be called a hobby that teens like to do. ^_^

For example. I like to think I am a mature professional man. I am 34, I work at a defense company. I have a beautiful daughter and a wonderful wife. I love anime and I have since I was a little kid. I clean magnas in my spare time. I have the maturity to pay my bills, take care of my child.
Anyway what part of loving anime is immature? I think believing in religion is immature. How can I be expected to believe in a god figure that I have no proof of? At least anime I can watch.


Anime becomes immature at a point where you will do nothing but watch it. Like above, when you can manage your time correctly then you can watch as much anime as you like. If you are able to do that, then you are truly mature.

Some anime addicts are annoying as all hell, and as a huge anime fan myself, I find them to be the reason why people have the mindset of "Anime fans =immature kids/teenagers in strange animal hats and naruto headbands who run around like rabid animals shouting "KAWAII!!111oneomglulz"". Which is...well, not me. XD

So, while being an anime fan definitely doesn't make you childish, childish people can be anime fans.
